Carol’s innovative approach is shifting the traditional model of weekly psychotherapy to meet your needs. Using her decades of experience and research-backed EMDR approach, Carol will support you during times that you need help the most. If traditional weekly sessions don’t work for you, Carol’s EMDR Intensive approach offers the flexibility you need.
Do any of the following ring true?
Perhaps you’ve had a felt sense that something profound has yet to change, but you’re not quite sure how to shift all the way into a new experience of yourself with your current therapist. Maybe you now cognitively understand new things, yet your body is still confused, so you’re curious about how adjunct EMDR therapy can help.
Perhaps you’ve been meaning to get into weekly therapy for a while now, but your schedule has been so hectic and demanding that a weekly therapy appointment feels more overwhelming than supportive.
Perhaps you’re needing help —- and a lot of it—- right now, and you don’t want to spend months in the traditional weekly model of therapy treatment to feel better.
EMDR is not just for trauma; it is also used for performance enhancement to excel in areas such as athletics, business, and relationships. EMDR intensives are personalized treatment plans and are designed to support your preferred schedule and timeline for your treatment goals.
Your EMDR Intensive includes:
Pre-consultation interview to assess for fit for the work
- Pre-Intensive meeting to review the pre-intensive workbook, develop treatment goals, establish resources for the work.
Personalized treatment workbook, which allows you to work on your treatment goals before, during, and after our EMDR intensive sessions.
Intensive session(s) using a customized treatment program with targeted treatment goals. During COVID, EMDR with Carol can be done virtually, often for 3-9 sessions (up to 2 hours each session). or if you are fully vaccinated, in person. (Carol is fully vaccinated)
Post-treatment meeting to assess and support your adaption to positive changes from treatment.
Collaboration: EMDR as Adjunct Therapy
We’ve all had those moments in therapy where we feel stuck or loop on issues related to negative life experiences. It can be discouraging for both the client and the therapist. Often times, when the primary therapist and client collaborate with an EMDR therapist, this partnership can help move treatment forward.
I can partner with primary therapists and their clients to target their clients’ specific memories, body sensations, or limiting beliefs with EMDR. By narrowly targeting specific traumatic memories or intrusive material, brief adjunct EMDR can accelerate progress in traditional therapy, help the client and the primary therapist to resolve stuck points, and enrich their ongoing work.
Adjunct therapy does not replace or interrupt ongoing therapy; it is supplemental to the primary therapeutic relationship. With adjunct EMDR therapy, clients continue to receive treatment with their primary therapist. Usually adjunct therapy is short term (4-12 extended sessions) and desensitizes single incident trauma or simple phobias that interfere with the client’s therapeutic gains. Treatment is scheduled in an intensive format. The success of treatment is based on clearly defined goals for the EMDR therapist, defined in collaboration with the primary therapist and client.
What is the difference between EMDR therapy and EMDR Intensives?
Some of the difference between traditional EMDR therapy and an EMDR Intensive session is that instead working weekly in EMDR treatments, an EMDR Intensive uses EMDR therapy in a condensed window of time.
What are the benefits of EMDR Intensive treatment?
- An EMDR Intensive treatment can often treat trauma in a shorter period of time as compare to weekly therapy treatments. Healing occurs in a matter of a few session.
- This decreased time in an intensive is beneficial to those with scheduling work or family conflicts. These sessions can save you money over the long run by saving on commuting, childcare, time off work, etc.
- EMDR Intensives can also save you money by decreasing travel costs
